Compulsory Ski Week!

Hello this is McKenna Q! Coming at you from Switzerland, and I have had an amazing week. 

After 3 years of no going outside during the school day and no field trips, karma has had its way and given me a week long adventure in the Swiss mountain of Verbier! 

The highlights are…

  • Taking a selfie at 3000 meters
  • Suddenly everyone wanting friendship bracelets from me
  • Breaking in my NEW skis
  • Reading (and acting out) a choose your own adventure book with my roommates 
  • Winning a camper of the week award from the staff because I was entertaining and polite!

Of course there were some things that bothered me like how I was the only girl in my skiing group and that nobody understood how cool a week long ski trip was because they had never been to public school, but that is easily ignored because I had such a good time. Even when you’re in a place unknown with strangers all you have to do is bust a dance move, be yourself, and absolutely everything will be fine. This is one tired McKenna signing off, ready to continue the amazing adventure.
